"Great quality and heavy weight"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautiful sturdy piece. Sometimes pieces with this level of detail can be flimsy and easily damaged, but this will not. I love the theme of the union of heaven and earth. If you think you would like this necklace, you probably will love it--- it is even better than pictured here.

If this had a much longer chain it would be perfect. I rarely wear it because it just doesnt look right so high on the chest.

"Striking folk art in silver"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I adore this beautiful cross! It was slightly bigger than I expected, and the details are fantastic! I love to wear it on religious occasions, as it is so unique and so different from typical crosses. The chain is also very nice. Neither the chain nor the cross have tarnished at all, so they are very easy to care for. I also ordered one as a gift for a friend, she loved it!
